“Hello. Hello. Anybody home? Heh, think McFly. Think!”

Under Barack Obama, the democrat party has suffered it’s worst mid-term losses in American history. First in 2010, and now in 2014. yet Barack has made it crystal clear he has no intention of moderating his political agenda or moving to the center as Bill Clinton famously did. This amusing clip from Back to the Future seems appropriate for the situation.

Now, before we all get crazy giddy because of last nights results, please bear in mind that the GOPe is called the Stupid Party for damned good reasons. After the 2010 mid-term rebuke of Obama’s policies, the GOPe leadership did more to further Obama’s agenda then the democrats who narrowly managed to hold their seats did. John “Bonehead” Boehner and Mitch “The Turtle” McConnell managed to stab the Republican base in the back at every single turn. Make no mistake about it, last nights results were not a result of hard work on the part of the GOPe, but a repudiation of Barack Obama’s Socialist/Marxist agenda.

The GOPe Leadership will no doubt to their very best to once again screw it’s base and the American people. After all, they know what is best for America, and according to them, what is best is a slower more incremental adoption of Barack Obama and the Democrat party’s Socialist/Marxist agenda. So, yes, you can count on John “Bonehead” Boehner and Mitch “The Turtle” McConnell doing everything in their power to pass amnesty for 30 million new Democrat voters. Keep racking up unsustainable debt, never holding the Obamanation Administration accountable for “Operation Fast and Furious”, Benghazi, the IRS scandal, the NSA Fourth and Fifth Amendment violations, oh and don’t forget, John “Bonehead” Boehner and Mitch “The Turtle” McConnell will also do everything in their power to ensure that Obamacare in never repealed either in whole or part.

Yea, that is exactly what you have to look forward to under the leadership of John “Bonehead” Boehner and Mitch “The Turtle” McConnell. If the results of last nights election are to have any meaning at all, then the leadership of the House and the Senate need to change hands from John “Bonehead” Boehner and Mitch “The Turtle” McConnell, they may get elected as Republicans, but you can damned well be sure that they are really Democrats wearing Republican clothing.

Ted Cruz has suggested that he will challenge Mitch “The Turtle” McConnell for control of the Senate, that would be the best possible outcome from this mid-term. The question now is, which congressman should wrest control of the House from John “Bonehead” Boehner? Personally, I can think of no better person to be House Majority Leader than South Carolina’s Trey Gowdy.


How corrupt is corrupt?

The Webster’s Dictionary for accuracy should have a picture of the Obama Administration right next to the word corrupt. It isn’t just Eric Holder’s department of Injustice, or even Barack Obama himself. It is a culture of pure political corruption that obviously runs through the administrative levels of every federal bureaucracy. Lois Lerner is the poster child for that corruption.

Lerner speaks! (To Politico)

posted at 9:21 am on September 22, 2014 by Ed Morrissey

The woman who made herself infamous for refusing to testify in the IRS scandal has finally broken her silence … to Politico, anyway. Flanked by lawyers during the interview, Lerner insists she did nothing wrong while running the tax-exempt unit at the IRS when it singled out conservative groups for investigation. If that’s the case, though, why is she telling that to Politico now rather than the House Oversight Committee then?

Lois Lerner is toxic — and she knows it. But she refuses to recede into anonymity or beg for forgiveness for her role in the IRS tea party-targeting scandal.

“I didn’t do anything wrong,” Lerner said in her first press interview since the scandal broke 16 months ago. “I’m proud of my career and the job I did for this country.”

The Inspector General of the Treasury certainly thought someone did something wrong. The original report revealed a concerted effort to target conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status for their efforts, while progressive applicants got a much easier ride. That targeting took place in Lerner’s unit, and just to emphasize that, Lerner and her management staged an apology right before the IG report went public in May 2013. Then-IRS commissioner Steve Miller acknowledged that he and Lerner staged that apology to take the sting out of the exposure of the targeting plot a week after it was given:

IRS Lawyers Admit Lois Lerner Obstructed Justice

Via FoxNews, IRS lawyers have dropped a bombshell admission that Lois Lerner’s Blackberry was intentionally wiped and destroyed after the start of the Congressional probe into the activities of her division:

Lois Lerner’s Blackberry was intentionally destroyed after Congress had begun its probe into IRS targeting of conservative groups, a senior IRS lawyer acknowledged in a sworn declaration.

Thomas Kane, Deputy Assistant Chief Counsel for the IRS, wrote in the declaration, part of a lawsuit filed by Judicial Watch against the IRS, that the Blackberry was “removed or wiped clean of any sensitive or proprietary information and removed as scrap for disposal in June 2012.”

That date – June 2012 – is significant because by that time, ex-IRS official Lerner had already been summoned before congressional staffers who interviewed her about reports of the IRS’ targeting of conservative groups.

This is a fairly astonishing admission and it’s difficult to see how this does not constitute textbook Obstruction of Justice under 18 USC 1505 (and possibly other statutes):

Whoever, with intent to avoid, evade, prevent, or obstruct compliance, in whole or in part, with any civil investigative demand duly and properly made under the Antitrust Civil Process Act, willfully withholds, misrepresents, removes from any place, conceals, covers up, destroys, mutilates, alters, or by other means falsifies any documentary material, answers to written interrogatories, or oral testimony, which is the subject of such demand; or attempts to do so or solicits another to do so; or
Whoever corruptly, or by threats or force, or by any threatening letter or communication influences, obstructs, or impedes or endeavors to influence, obstruct, or impede the due and proper administration of the law under which any pending proceeding is being had before any department or agency of the United States, or the due and proper exercise of the power of inquiry under which any inquiry or investigation is being had by either House, or any committee of either House or any joint committee of the Congress—
Shall be fined under this title, imprisoned not more than 5 years or, if the offense involves international or domestic terrorism (as defined in section 2331), imprisoned not more than 8 years, or both.

Caselaw on obstruction of justice indicates that it does not matter whether the emails in question were in fact held on a central server, you can be dinged for obstruction for the attempt to destroy the information if you delete mails in, say, your Outlook inbox even though your company keeps all emails on a central server. It is intended to protect against the eventuality where (as here) the emails in question mysteriously go missing from the central server or the person responsible for retrieving them claims that it would be impossible or impractical to do so. Not to mention the fact that you don’t get a free pass for obstruction of justice just because you’re not smart enough to do it properly.
Every new revelation in this case points to an aggressive effort on the part of the IRS to improperly and possibly illegally hide evidence from the public as to its activities. It is past time for someone at DOJ to show as much interest in the proper administration of justice with respect to the IRS as they did to Arthur Andersen.

Her protestations to the contrary, there is simply no doubt that Lois Lerner knowingly willingly and with a full forethought of malice committed felony level criminal actions. Richard Nixon was forced to resign from the Office of President of the United States of America mere hours ahead of certain Impeachment over far less serious criminal actions taken on his behalf by his subordinates.

After his assertions that there was not even a smidgen of corruption over at the IRS, Barack Obama should be held to the exact same standard as Richard Nixon was held to.

If there is any place in America more corrupt that the Obama Administration (shocking as this assertion may seem) then it can only be Congress itself. It is Congresses responsibility to ensure that Lois Lerner and every other bureaucrat who like Lois Lerner, willfully and knowingly breaks the law, is held to the fullest accountability by the law. Failure by Congress to do so has but only a single solitary consequence, and that is to destroy the public’s faith in the America legal system and by extension, the government of the United States of America.

13th Anniversary of 9/11

The imbecilic socialist/Marxist Democrats were hoping that the war on terror would be long over by now so that they could return to plundering the wealth of America’s middle class. Obama and the democrats didn’t object to the wars in Iraq or Afghanistan because they thought those wars were wrong, despite what they might claim, no they objected because the money spent on those wars, was money they could not steal.

Now Obama wants half a trillion dollars to fight ISIS/ISIL. ISIS/ISIL wouldn’t even exist were it not for Barack Obama’s pure stupidity. So here we are, 13 years after 9/11/01, and thanks to Barack Obama, we’re right back where we started in the war on terror. There is one significant difference this time though. Barack Obama gave 5 million dollars and 5 top generals back to the terrorists in trade for a deserter and traitor so that he could claim that he had won the war on terror.


Now with that out of the way, I haven’t been writing much lately because I am back in school. I’m studying to obtain a welding certificate. Here are some pictures of me learning to weld, and some of my crappy music to listen to while you are looking at the pretty pictures.







Meet Wile E Coyote, Super Genius.

Ok, so let’s make this short and sweet. If you’re a blogger, and you are using phrases like unexpectedly or inexplicably when you are writing anything about Barack Obama or anyone in the Obama Administration, if you write about the Mainstream Media, and are surprised by anything they do, then you are a fluking Wile E Coyote, Super Genius.

Like Adolph Hitler before him, Barack Obama told everyone right up front what he intended to do. Fundamentally Transform America, helloieee, ring any fluking bells? What the fuck did you think Fundamentally Transform America meant? Are you really that fucking stupid? Barack Obama is a fucking Marxist, hello… Community Activist? Read Saul Alinsky, community activist means Marxist agitator.

Barack Obama’s mother and father were avowed Marxists, so were his grandparents, so was his mentor Frank Marshall Davis, so is his friend from the hood, William “Bill” Ayres. You honestly have to be stupider than a 5 gallon bucket of used camel snot to not see the obvious.

Ed Morrissey over at Hot Air is a fluking Wile E Coyote, Super Genius at best, pretending that he is shocked that Gambling is going on at Ricks place.

Media curiously silent on “Truthy”

It’s been a couple of days since the Washington Free Beacon’s Elizabeth Harrington first reported on the three-year-old federal grant from the National Science Foundation for the “Truthy” database, and … not much else has happened. Blogs have picked it up, including our own Mary Katharine, and Reason’s Bobby Soave did a good job of highlighting its inherent contradictions. Twitchy has collated a number of tongue-in-cheek attempts to kick-start Truthy. Other than that, the national media appears to have gone radio silent on this latest project; according to a Bing news search this morning, no national outlet has yet picked up the story from WFB.

That’s interesting, because one might have guessed that they would take notice of a million-dollar effort to encroach on their fact-checking turf. In my column for The Week today, I wonder why the federal government is spending a million dollars to create a mechanism that sounds like it could come straight out of Orwell when we have a perfectly good private-sector market for free speech:

The Federal Government is paying millions of dollars to attempt to place 1984 controls over social media and the Mainstream Media is silent on the issue. Big fucking shock, the media has been providing Obama and his Marxist coup with cover since day one.

Ed likes to pretend that he is a big fan of Andrew Breitbart, but somehow Ed is to chicken shit scared to ever point out that according to Andrew Breitbart, the single biggest and most dangerous enemy to the United States, is the Mainstream Media. Let’s face the truth,Ed so desires to be the next Dan Rather, that he’s already sold his soul to the devil for that chance.

Is there a conspiracy within the Mainstream Media to help Barack Obama Fundamentally Transform America into a Marxist Utopia? Hell yes there is.

JournoList 2.0

A Media Trackers open records request has revealed a secret Google group aimed at helping liberals influence public policy by driving the media narrative.

“Gamechanger Salon” is a (now not-so-) secret Google group with a membership of over 1000 left wing influencers. Media Trackers discovered the group after filing an open records request concerning a professor and activist at the University of Wisconsin. Members include journalists from outlets like the Huffington Post, MSNBC, ThinkProgress, and Media Matters, and activists from groups like the Progressive Change Campaign Committee, Change.org, Planned Parenthood, and the AFL-CIO.

Is Ed Morrissey a member of this new conspiracy? I do not know, but I sure as hell wouldn’t be surprised, especially the way he keeps being surprised like Captain Renault every time the media or the Obamanation Administration is caught attempting that fundamental transformation.

The smidgens have come home to roost…

The not so Reverend Jeremiah Wright once presumed to proclaim that America’s Chickens were coming home to roost, now it appears that Barack Obama’s smidgen’s are instead coming home to roost.

The Lerner Files: “smidgens upon smidgens” of corruption

Do you remember way back in February when the President said that not only was there not massive corruption in the IRS scandal, but not even a smidgen of corruption? Ah… good times, my friends. This weekend I highly recommend that you check out a piece by Ed Rogers, writing at the Washington Post, with the amusing title, More IRS smidgens show up. ‘Perfect.’

Anyone paying attention to the Internal Revenue Service scandal has been waiting for the next smidgen to drop. Well, two more hit pretty hard this week. At the president’s next encounter with the media, I will scream collusion if no one asks him for his exact definition of a “smidgen,” and if he thinks he has seen a smidgen of corruption yet. At this point, only the most gullible or culpable can continue to claim there is no compelling evidence in this case. Given the delays, lies and stonewalling, there is no viable argument against a special prosecutor.

The two items in question are ones which we’ve already discussed here. One – perhaps the most damning in recent months – was the shocking (meaning, not shocking) revelation that Lerner had previously told her co-workers that, “we need to be cautious about what we say in emails” and wanted to know if instant messaging texts were recorded.

The second was the oh-so-understandable “misunderstanding” about whether or not she had printed out any of her e-mails. And let’s face it… who can be sure what was meant when somebody asks you if you printed something? Did they mean “print” the documents, or print print the documents? It’s all terribly confusing.

First we hear that U.S. District Judge Emmet G. Sullivan has ordered the IRS to testify under oath regarding exactly what transpired regarding the destruction of Lois Lerner’s emails. Justice Sullivan is no one to toy with, he is as demanding and fearless as they come. I think it is a fair prediction to make that someone is going to testify before him and the result is that someone is going to end up going to prison as a consequence of that testimony.

Federal judge orders IRS to explain lost Lerner emails ‘under oath’

A federal judge has ordered the IRS to explain “under oath” how the agency lost a trove of emails from the official at the heart of the Tea Party targeting scandal.

U.S. District Judge Emmet G. Sullivan gave the tax agency 30 days to file a declaration by an “appropriate official” to address the computer issues with ex-official Lois Lerner.

The decision came Thursday as part of a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit by conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch, which along with GOP lawmakers on Capitol Hill has questioned how the IRS lost the emails and, in some cases, had no apparent way to retrieve them.

Now we are hearing that another Federal Judge wants in on the action, it would seem that U.S. District Judge Reggie B. Walton smells blood in the water. While considering this information, remember that it took quiet a while for Watergate to come up to speed and force Richard Nixon from office.

Second federal judge wants info on lost IRS emails

WASHINGTON — A second federal judge has ordered the IRS to provide information about lost emails from a central figure in the agency’s tea party controversy.

U.S. District Judge Reggie B. Walton said Friday he wants to know whatever became of Lois Lerner’s computer hard drive. IRS officials say Lerner’s computer crashed in 2011, destroying an untold number of emails.

At the time, Lerner headed the IRS division that processes applications for tax-exempt status. She has since retired.

IRS Commissioner John Koskinen has told Congress that Lerner’s hard drive was recycled and presumably destroyed. If that’s the case, Walton said he wants a sworn affidavit saying so by the end of next week.

Walton also wants information about the IRS inspector general’s investigation into the lost emails.

Walton spoke at a hearing Friday in a lawsuit by a conservative group against the IRS. True the Vote, which says it advocates for the integrity of elections, sued the IRS over delays in its application for tax-exempt status.

Walton’s order came a day after another federal judge ordered the IRS to explain under oath how it lost the emails. U.S. District Judge Emmet G. Sullivan, who issued his order on Thursday, gave the tax agency a month to submit the explanation in writing.

When we throw into this now toxic mix former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin publicly calling for Obama’s impeachment it would seem that the situation might very well be getting drastic for Obama.

Palin makes the case for impeaching Obama

Her op-ed earlier this week focused on immigration. Today’s op-ed is a more comprehensive indictment, starting with the case that “high crimes and misdemeanors” includes dereliction of duty, not just statutory crimes.

I want to quote this part:

Impeachment is the ultimate check on an out-of-control executive branch. It is serious, not to be used for petty partisan purposes; and it is imperative that it becomes a matter of legitimate discussion before the American people lose all trust in our federal government.

Impeachment requires moral courage to advance what is right, and it requires political will. A complacent or disheartened electorate may silently endure these abuses from the administration, the permanent political class is only too happy to maintain the status quo, and the mainstream media is not a fair watchdog. So, the nation’s last line of defense is for We the People to rise up and say, “enough is enough.”…

Some argue that at best the House might vote for articles of impeachment, but the Senate is unlikely to convict. But that is no argument against holding a president accountable and sending the people’s message to all successors…

The only thing necessary to transform America into something unrecognizable is for good men to do nothing! If not these violations and the president’s promise to continue to “go it alone” in ignoring the separation of powers and rule of law, what will it take for you to take a stand? How bad does it have to get?

Ultimately, she’s saying, this all comes down to public outrage, which is exactly right — but that’s why there’s going to be no impeachment. Right? If the wider public shared her many objections to Obama — power grabs, amnesty, ObamaCare, NSA spying, Benghazi, the Bergdahl prisoner swap — his job approval would be in single digits. As it is, he’s at 41 percent, which is poor but not nearly so atrociously bad that any congressional Democrats would feel compelled to remove him from office. Even among the 54-55 percent who disapprove of his job performance, there are bound to be loads of people who think that he’s guilty of nothing more than incompetence, not dereliction of duty worthy of the first successful forcible ouster of the president in American history. I haven’t seen any polls on impeachment lately, but I’d guess that impeachment supporters would start with something like 55-60 percent of the public opposed (all Democrats and a majority of indies) and 40 percent or so in favor (most Republicans). Once the media went to work on “GOP extremism,” Democrats started rolling out talking points about how the “party of no” isn’t interested in real solutions for the middle class, and a few centrist Republicans in Congress publicly expressed opposition, it’d probably move another 10 points against. What then?

Which no doubt explains Eric Holder’s reaction to Palin calling for Obama’s Impeachment. Eric would of course lose any possibility of receiving a Presidential Pardon for his role in the IRS scandal as well as his part in “Operation Fast and Furious”. Yes, Eric Holder has plenty of reason to attack Sarah Palin, since he is neck deep in trouble himself.

Eric Holder: Palin Wasn’t a Good VP Candidate, Even Worse Judge of Who Should Be Impeached

Attorney General Eric Holder is challenging Republicans who are calling for his and President Obama’s impeachment, and denouncing what he calls a “gridlocked Washington” stalled by what he says is a Republican Party bent on blocking any of the administration’s efforts.

“For whatever reason, [some] Republicans decided early on that this was a president they were just simply not going to cooperate with,” Holder said in a rare interview with ABC News’ Pierre Thomas. “And over the past five-and-a-half years, we have seen demonstrations of that, where the president has reached out his hand, offered compromises that have simply not been met [in the way] they have been in the past by a Republican Party willing to do the appropriate things.”

Administration efforts to pass comprehensive immigration reform, for example, have failed. Asked about calls by Sarah Palin to impeach Obama over the administration’s immigration policies, Holder said: “She wasn’t a particularly good vice presidential candidate. She’s an even worse judge of who ought to be impeached and why.”

Holder similarly dismissed calls for himself to be impeached for declining to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate the IRS scandal. Holder insisted that a special prosecutor isn’t necessary, with “career people” and FBI agents “doing a good, professional job” investigating the matter.

Things are starting to look as if they could take a really bad turn for the Obamanation Administration and Obama’s various cronies. Obama and company apparently never learned anything from the Nixon or Clinton scandals, in the end, it come down to this. It’s the cover up stupid.

Hat Tip to Hot Air’s partsnlabor for the phrase “The smidgens have come home to roost…”

How can you tell when a fascist wannabe has smoked to much crack?

MSLSD imbecile Michael Eric Dyson has officially gone on record as having smoked way to much crack while simultaneously taking way to much LSD. This lunatic imbecile is, by the way, a professor of sociology at Georgetown University, and you wonder why America college kids are so damned stupid these days.

Unhinged MSNBC Host: Sarah Palin Made ‘Treasonous Accusations’ Against Obama

MSNBC host Michael Eric Dyson on Wednesday lashed out at Sarah Palin, accusing the conservative of committing “treason” against Barack Obama by calling for the President’s impeachment. The guest host of the Ed Show first praised the President for “his tireless effort to help [illegal children who have crossed the border].” Dyson then fumed, “The President’s push towards positive and crucial change was met with treasonous accusations.” [See video below. MP3 audio here.]

During the last administration, however, Dyson called for the impeachment of George W. Bush. In a highly edited clip of Palin on Fox News, the Republican insisted, “Impeachment is a message that has to be sent to our President that we’re not going to put up with lawlessness… I really want Congress to do its job, the constitutional power that they have to halt an imperial presidency.”

During the Bush administration, Michael Eric Dyson was a signer to this petition:

The Call to Drive Out the Bush Regime

YOUR GOVERNMENT, on the basis of outrageous lies, is waging a murderous and utterly illegitimate war in Iraq, with other countries in their sights.

YOUR GOVERNMENT enforces a culture of greed, bigotry, intolerance and ignorance.

People look at all this and think of Hitler – and they are right to do so. The Bush regime is setting out to radically remake society very quickly, in a fascist way, and for generations to come. We must act now; the future is in the balance.

We need more than fighting Bush’s outrages one at a time, constantly losing ground to the whole onslaught. We must, and can, aim to create a political situation where the Bush regime’s program is repudiated, where Bush himself is driven from office.

According to Dyson’s own logic, aren’t these “treasonous accusations?” (Of course, it should be pointed out that “treason” is commited against a country, not a president.)

Dyson’s former colleague, Keith Olbermann, also called for Bush’s impeachment. On September 4, 2007, he raged, “Mr. Bush, our presence in Iraq must end, even if it means your resignation, even if it means your impeachment.”

So, not only has Dyson put on public display an amazing ignorance of the United States Constitution, a complete inability to employ rational or logical thought, but a degree of hypocrisy that is monumental. If Georgetown University were a public corporation, like say, Mozilla, this kind of arrogant narcissistic stupidity would potentially result in Dyson finding himself unemployed, which would clearly result in an elevation of the aggregate IQ of Georgetown University students.

Article III, Section 3 of some little-used document known as the Constitution:

“Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.

The Congress shall have Power to declare the Punishment of Treason, but no Attainder of Treason shall work Corruption of Blood, or Forfeiture except during the Life of the Person attainted.”

18 U.S. Code § 2381 – Treason

Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.

Way beyond mere corruption.

Mere weeks after Lois Lerners hard drive supposedly crashed taking with it her emails regarding the IRS conspiracy to target for intimidation TEA Party and Conservative groups, the IRS canceled a long standing contract with Sonasoft for back up email services. Now suddenly Ro Khanna, a wannbe politician supported heavily by the board of directors of Sonasoft has working on his election campaign Barack Obama’s former election advisors.

Board of Sonasoft, IRS email contractor, working to get ‘Silicon Valley’s Wannabe Obama’ elected

The 2014 campaign connection

After the 2012 election – and this is what really caught Joshua Green’s attention – Khanna began preparing for a new campaign in Silicon Valley, this time with the biggest names from the Obama 2012 campaign team on his roster. Khanna is making another run in 2014 against an entrenched Democrat (seven-termer Mike Honda), but he brings major firepower, especially for a guy you’ve probably never heard of:

What makes Khanna more interesting than your typical underdog is who else he has in his corner. On April 2, when he announced that he would challenge Honda, he also revealed that the people who will be running his campaign are many of the same ones who just got Barack Obama reelected. Even though Khanna has never been elected to anything, he has managed to sign up one of Obama’s top-three fundraisers, Steve Spinner, as his campaign chairman; Obama’s national field director, Jeremy Bird, as his chief strategist; and the president’s media firm, pollster, and data-analytics team, along with assorted other veterans of the reelection. Their aim is to build at the congressional level the same type of campaign they ran for Obama. It’s as if Bill Belichick and the staff of the New England Patriots decided to coach a high school football team.

Somebody really wants to get this guy elected. And the interesting thing is that two of Sonasoft’s three board members appear to be in the middle of it.

Romi Randhawa, CEO of HPM Networks, is perhaps of lesser interest in this regard. His main appearance was as joint host of a fundraising reception for Khanna in October 2013.

But Romesh Japra, a high-profile figure in Silicon Valley’s Indian-American community, seems to be playing a bigger role. Besides being one of Khanna’s major donors ($7,400 since 2011), Japra has been implicated in a byzantine effort to run multiple Republican candidates in the primary, and thus divide the GOP vote so that Khanna and Honda, the Democrats, face off only with each other in November 2014.

California adopted a non-partisan “jungle primary” system via Proposition 14 in 2010, and the Golden State’s primaries now advance the top two vote-getters, even if they’re both from the same party. If you want to make an intra-party challenge to a strong incumbent, the most effective divide-and-conquer strategy may well be an across-the-board “more the merrier” approach.

Republican candidate Vanila Singh, running for the 17th district seat this spring, had the GOP field to herself, until a pair of high-profile Khanna supporters encouraged another Republican, Joel Vanlandingham, to join the campaign late. One of that pair was reportedly Romesh Japra (see last link above).

The primary result on 3 June was satisfactory for Khanna supporters, although things might well have turned out the same without Vanlandingham as a spoiler. Honda and Khanna will have the race to themselves in November.

The peculiar thing, in any case, is Sonasoft’s collateral connectedness to the Khanna drama, on which the Obama machine has left such distinctive fingerprints. It doesn’t seem to signify anything more than the web of vaguely icky crony connections that characterize so much of government and politics today – regrettably, on both sides of the aisle.

J.E. Dyer is being oh so incredibly diplomatic here. Lois Lerner’s emails disappeared, Sonasoft should have had those disappeared emails because that was the contract they had with the IRS. Sonasoft has volunteered no information regarding those emails. But now suddenly an individual with political aspiration directly connected to Sonasoft is receiving an unprecedented level of assistance from the former Obama campaign team in his own election bid.

I will say what J.E. Dyer is far to circumspect to say outright. It looks as if one of two things are in play here. Either the Obama Administration is being successfully blackmailed into supporting Khanna, or the Obama Administration is paying off a debt to Sonasoft. At either rate, not only should Lois Lerner and the entire senior Obama administration staff be going to prison, but so should the administrative staff at Sonasoft.
